Tenacious D to Create a Comedy Rock Festival

January 17, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Tenacious D is planning a comedy rock festival for this fall. Jack Black revealed the news in an interview with Rolling Stone and said they were hoping to have the likes of Flight Of The Conchords, Spinal Tap, Tim Minchin, Eric Idle, Lonely Island and Zach Galifianakis play.

Black was asked if he had ever considered forming a rivalry with Flight of the Conchords and said, “We actually have been talking about joining forces, because we’ve always wanted to do a double bill. We’re working on a festival, called Festival Supreme. It’ll be a meeting of the minds. It’s gonna be like Mount Rockmore, where you’ve got your Flight of the Conchords, your Lonely Island, your Tenacious D, your Zach Galifianakis, your Spinal Tap, your Eric Idle.”

There is no location for the festival, but there is a date. “October 19, circle that in your calendar”, said Black. “Now there’s no guarantee who’s gonna be on the bill – it might just be Tenacious D and Weird Al (Yankovic). But that’s a long ways off.”
